Insight comes from gifted individuals that perceive and receive information through the theoretical super-physical senses.

Bull.

From Webster:

 

Quote

 

Definition of insight

 

1 : the power or act of seeing into a situation : penetration
2 : the act or result of apprehending the inner nature of things or of seeing intuitively
 

 

 
It requires no special ability to see the reason for a thing. Merely an ability to examine a situation and see the causation.
You are making the same basic error that all the tweener's do in regards to empathy: attributing an ability with 'supernormal' powers.

Not bait joc, I'm just trying to understand what kind of thing you had in mind.

My insight is telling me that you have little or no interest in understanding anything that I or anyone else  on the team says.  My insight is telling me that you troll these threads looking to pick a fight with what you deem Team.  The Evidence for that is in every thread that you take part in.

I have better things to do actually...like go to bed.

Then it can be verified, FOR EVERYONE.

 

For sure. When it leads to everyone getting the evidence of what's real, it could be because that's the main mission for insight.

Ran this statement through a semantics logic engine. The result: null value.

Why are special considerations and factors only applied to spiritual matters? 

 

Aren't all considerations applied in accordance with the level of insight realized based on the evidence at hand?

If one has to rely on doublespeak and 'special' considerations then there is no insight there is just BS parading as insight.

If I kick you in the 'jewels', is that real? Is the pain 'truth'? Would you gain insight into what it means to be in pain?

You are postulating that 'insight' and 'evidence' are mutually exclusive on one another, and that is a false premise.

Example: You can have evidence that fire will consume any flammable material it encounters. You gain insight that fire can also cause pain, when you thrust your hand into flames, yes?

 

Does one fact negate the other?

Once again cormac, you seem to have found a way to reduce yourself to the bleetings of someone driven by their base emotions.

Congratulations. Well done.

Nope, I don't like people who are attempting to appear profound while in the process of BSing others. YOU are most definitely NOT profound in any way, shape or form. Congratulations.

Insight or Evidence

 

Like with so many other things, there exists a contradiction in terms between Insight and Evidence.

 

Evidence often hinders a person's inclination towards spiritual exploration; while Insight excersises a person's nature towards spiritual discovery and growth.

 

Which of the two is preferable?

 

 

Insight is the fast track to evidence, it doesn’t hinder anything. Most humans have this skill it isn’t special.

Insight is gestalt summation and correlation of available data--not to be confused with inspiration.

Exactly, posting UB quotes with no context or purpose or point isn’t profound. 

Hammer claw is profound and believes in god, Stubbs is profound and beliefs in god.

You are also profound--and if there is a God--he couldn't help but believe in you.

...

In the sense of a deep understanding - that a back-draft is not caused by baked beans is an insight into the behaviour of fire.
